Tasting notes

Smooth and luscious are words this wine evokes again and gain. The nose fills with the scents of red currants, lavender, violets and butterscotch. In the mouth, the wine softens as the flavors (red plums, black cherries, mint, a ribbon of vanilla) expand in the mouth. The tannins are well integrated from the very smooth entry through the silky finish. The 2001 FAY promises to age beautifully, but it will tempt you to pair it now with beef filet, olive bread or cheese fondue.
